Synopsis (from Goodreads): Mating with a human is strictly forbidden. Alpha wolf-shifter Dane has been forced to stand by and watch the love of his life date another. Trisha is off limits to him because she isn't a supernatural and she's not allowed to know his secrets. When he realizes she's going to take the plunge and marry another--a human--he can't fight his inner beast any longer. It wants to claim her and he's going to let it.*previously released in the Legendary Tales IV Antho from Ellora's Cave.
Secrets We Keep is a short read, and as such this will only be a short review.
Despite the fact that this was only a quick read, Roth managed to create a lot of world building within Secrets We Keep. While wolf-shifter culture was't fully explored, enough information was given about it for there to be a sense of the world in which Dane belonged, and give it an individuality away from some of the other wolf-shifters out there.
There was good chemistry between Dane and Trisha, and it had been building for almost 7 years prior to the events of Secrets We Keep. Because of that the tension built between them but they were both wary of doing anything, particularly because of Trisha's fiancé. However, everything got sorted out for them and it worked well.
This was a great quick read, particularly for fans of Roth's books, or for fans of wolf-shifters in general!
